The Mother’s Day Prawn Festival at Fairview racecourse on Sunday May 10 will provide the perfect opportunity for offspring to spoil their Moms. Last year’s event was extremely well attended and turned out to be one of Port Elizabeth’s best family day occasions of the year.
A supply of three tons of succulent prawns will be on sale in the Prawn Tent at the jaw dropping price of R120 per kg and will be accompanied by a chips or rice and a flavour choice of peri-peri and lemon butter.
Racing purists will have a lot to look forward to as the meeting coincides with the 54th running of the Grade 3 SW Security Solutions East Cape Derby and for the first time the Listed Dahlia Plate will be included on the action-packed nine race schedule.
Algoa FM will be broadcasting live from Fairview from 09h00 to 12h00 and plenty of additional entertainment will be provided while the race meeting is in progress. There will be a Mother’s Day market at the bottom of the grandstand where a variety of vendors will be advertising and selling their merchandise. The proceedings will be peppered throughout the day by lucky draws sponsored by Makro and the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University will stage both a fashion show and fashion competition. The little ones will also be provided for as there will be a Kiddies Play area and pony rides. Guests booked in the HB Christian Room at R300 per person, will receive a VIP luncheon, welcoming wines on their tables as well as race-cards and gifts.
Don’t miss the Bay’s best Mother’s Day!
The gates open at 11:00, entrance is free and pre-sold prawn tickets can be purchased through Computicket
